Fall is in the Air

A lot of stuff going on in my First and Second Life.  Trying to keep up with it all.  Just wanted to stop and take time to post this nice Fall scene I recently came across in SL.

This is an area behind the Apple May Design Mens Store.  There is a pumpkin hunt going on there and there are very nice scenic spots so I snapped a few and share one here.

I have a few more on my flickr page.

Rocky at Home


I rarely go downstairs to sit in my living room. Probably because my "Home" point where I usually rez in-world is actually my bedroom. So here I am sitting on the sofa in front of the fireplace. I should probably spend time tickling the ivory on the piano there too. :)

Plants in your eco-friendly space


It's certainly no secret that plants in your home or workspace environment can have an effect on your overall sense of peace and happiness.  This is true in both your first and second life.

Are you are looking for an orchid to brighten up a space in your home or office?  Perhaps you want to give  a beautiful rose plant to someone special.   Then look no further than the PlantPets Store at Rockridge Heights where you will find many beautiful plant varieties to choose from.  

Rocky Constantine says "PlantPets are probably the easiest breedable you can have in Second Life.  Just rez the seed, keep the water level near 100%, and you can have a baby plant seed every 52 days. You can even set plant friends to help you water them when you are away from SL.  Very low maintenance and there are no complicated fertilizers to buy. "

So stop by Rockridge Heights and get yourself a little happiness today.   The PlantPet store is conveniently located on the corner of the sim.  When taking the train to Rockridge Heights be sure to exit the train station at the East Terminal.  Or take this landmark for a direct connection.  PlantPet Store and Crazy Garden @ Rockridge Heights

Rocky is NOT on Facebook.

Happy Friday to all my blog followers..  I have had a few messages from friends in Second Life asking me if I unfriended them on Facebook..  It would take a lot for me to do that, but for the record... Facebook disabled my account at the end of May this year and wanted verifiable identification.  No cigar  So I decided not to return.  Please feel free to share this with others who may be wondering "Where is Rocky?"  You could also "Google Me" and you will see that I am in a lot of other places.  Have a super weekend!

Shadows in my Second Life

I remember when I first discovered shadows in Second Life a couple of years ago.  That was certainly a real eye opener for me.  Unfortunately, it involved setting the viewer to a higher graphic setting than my old computer could not handle.  Often times it would freeze up or crash when I did that.  So I decided to just move through my SL without that luxury. *sad face*

A few months ago, I decided to finally get a new desktop computer.  It was certainly due for an upgrade anyway and with the XP support going away, it pushed me to get a new one sooner.

I had always enjoyed exploring the various windlight settings.  I usually stick to using my favorite CalWL.  No fancy light settings, its just a nice basic setting for getting around in SL.  Now, I get a WOW effect when I want to try and take a super nice photo such as the one in this post.

I am certainly not a pro photographer, but it is nice to see that the average Joe can also take nice photos without any use of Photoshop.  By the way, I do have PS,but really have yet to explore the capabilities.  In fact, this photo was taken with only the "High" setting and not "Ultra".  This particular WL Sky setting is called Fine Day.

Boots Beach Has a New Address

Regular followers of my blog will know that Boots Beach holds a special place in my Second Life.  When I first arrived in SL, this was where I used to hang out with all the "Beach Bums"  It is also where I met my early mentors JakeC Hotshot and Eddi Haskell.

Markus has managed to keep the beach going strong with parties and shops and yes you can still just hang out around the camp fire.  A few weeks ago the beach moved and I wanted to share with you the new landmark.  There have been a few changes, but you will still find the same welcoming space that people have come to know and love.   Grab this surf board and go check it out -- http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Gay%20Fun%20Beach/74/38/21

Second Life: The adventure continues...

I grabbed a water bottle and my backpack and headed out to explore SL. 6+ years and it is still a great adventure for me. I hope it is for you too.

Wearing daFB tee seems very appropriate

My friend Mikedacook (creator of Mikey's Tees) is offering this awesome T-shirt that I just had to grab. Apparently Facebook feels the same way about me and I have no immediate plans to return. You can find it on the porch if you visit his store.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Boston%20Nightlife/22/98/23

Working off those Holiday Pounds

So sorry for the lag in my blogging. Hope you are still following me and I will try to blog more often in 2014.
